Standing Committees

Within the Office of the Vice-President, Academic, there are two Standing Committees which oversee the adjudication of two different awards:

Call for Nominations:  Sterling Prize in Support of Controversy
 
The Sterling Prize Committee is looking for work that challenges complacency.  The Nora and Ted Sterling Prize in Support of Controversy is awarded annually to a recipient whose work presents new ways of looking at the world, ways that are daring and creative.  Whether a student, a staff member, an academic at SFU, or a member of the community who has a connection to the University, the prize winner is selected for decidedly unconventional and distinctly untraditional work that provokes a wide audience.  The winner receives a cash award of $5,000 and makes a public presentation at the Centre for Dialogue.
 
Check here for additional information about the Sterling Prize.  The nomination form is attached.
 
The Sterling Prize Committee would appreciate receiving notice of intention to nominate.  Whether you’re planning to put together a nomination package, or would like to suggest an individual whose work merits consideration, please contact the committee at 778.782.3925 or vpacad@sfu.ca
